At home with Alice and Georg H Endress

Endress+Hauser will use the former home of the founding couple in Arlesheim as a guest house

Publication date: 25.04.2024

Endress+Hauser has converted the former home of Alice and Georg H Endress into a guest house. The building on the outskirts of the municipality of Arlesheim, Switzerland, has 10 guest rooms and several lounges. A pavilion in the garden offers space for meetings and seminars. The property will be used by employees of the company, which is based in the neighboring town of Reinach, as well as members of the shareholder family.

The estate of the company founder and his wife is now owned by Endress+Hauser. With its special history, the guest house offers a personal touch in contrast to ordinary guest houses and hotels. The villa and the small gatehouse with garage were modernized during the extensive renovation. Wood and exposed concrete characterize the architecture of the guest house. The rooms are bright and friendly and the interior is of high quality.

The focus on sustainability is evident in the choice of materials and the photovoltaic system on the roof. Inside, elements of the original interior design have been incorporated into the new usage: Some guest rooms therefore feature the characteristic vaulted ceiling of the former swimming pool.

A place full of memories

The house is still associated with many fond memories for the descendants of the company founder and his wife. The property was a favorite meeting place for the whole family; many Sundays and public holidays were spent here together. The grandchildren played in the garden or used the indoor swimming pool. It was a meeting place, but also a place of retreat, where Alice and Georg H Endress also spent their twilight years.

Georg Herbert Endress was born on 9 January 1924 in Freiburg im Breisgau. In 1953, he founded L Hauser KG together with his partner Ludwig Hauser, thus laying the foundations for the Endress+Hauser Group.

It was not until many years later, when the company was already internationally successful, that Alice and Georg H Endress moved into the villa in Arlesheim with its extensive garden bordering a small forest with a stream. Previously, the couple and their eight children had lived in a regular family home in Reinach.
